Is it a perfect bio-pic of Joe? Nope! But it is still thoroughly enjoyable.

I know I shouldn't give it five stars, but I'm going to give it five stars but I want to :D

here it is again- a tale of the new world; far too straight for anyone who is straight to set the example he or she wants to.

its a story we all should learn because we not only serve to know the answer, but we deserve to know the answer.

just like twelve o'clock high, which is really the best example of this lesson of when enough is enough, and when too much is too much, this film portrays the point as best it can, and it has some great old film to help out.

really a very good, entertaining glimpse at our fight game. anybody expect to come out of seeing this film thinking wyoming is the best designed state anyhow????

nah-- you won't need any popcorn.
